to it. i think that relation, not just the catholic church, but faith and religion are misrepresented in the major media. first of all, you can present your own opinion on fact, as fact, because why? as long as you're talking about religion, religion is totally subjective and the not based on any truth, no matter what you say, it's okay. what's an example of that? this last week, bill collar of the new york times wrote an article how to die, it was all about end of life care. the suggestions he made was that the reason we're not able to, as a society, get to a point in which our loved ones can die peacefully is because the catholic church would never allow such practices to occur. meaning what? a suggestion that the catholic church would require a family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying alive. it's simply not the truth. but, nobody stands up to it because you know what? as long as you're talking about religion, as long as you can offer any opinion you want and pass it as fact because religion itself is purely subjective. >> clayton: what about during the vic

religion. >> i'm not catholic. i am an episcopalian. i cannot answer that question. my husband is a catholic. we have raised our children as catholics. i would be happy to talk about my view on abortion. it should be safe, legal, and repair. >> here is a valid point that is constructed. we have babies in america and i would that are being aborted simply because they are little baby girls, because the mother wants a boy instead of a girl. we have legislation before congress that prohibits sex selective abortion. she thinks it is ridiculous to talk about it. i think it matters to the little girls are being aborted. >> election day is one week away. >> i like watching the gavel-to- gavel coverage. it is the only place to get the real deal. i also enjoy news makers and the book programs. i like that the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on. there is not too much analysis. opinion.rtainly is i appreciate all i can see through it and understand ithe programming itself. i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your government works directly, c- s

i understand that. we are getting phone calls in iowa. the issue of romney's religion is an issue i raised with him when he ran a pull your years ago and its initial history sensitive about man does not like to talk about. iowa republicans are dominated by evangelical christians. they are a bit leery of mormons. they don't understand it it. they don't like to talk about it. no one will say i am not excited about mitt romney because he's a mormon, but they are aware of it. so that is an issue. it goes more to not whether someone will support mitt romney or not support mitt romney but the enthusiasm level they will bring to the campaign. that diminishes it just a bit. so that's an issue. if you look at how the campaign plays out, i think that will be one of the major deciding factors in this election, which i think is very close. and that is the enthusiasm level that each candidate can bring to the game. can mitt romney excite republican -- the republican base, which is largely evangelical christians in iowa? kendra obama excite the democratic base? barack obama excite the democratic

not. can we do it because people treat it as a religion rather than a common sense enterprise happy? yeah, we could do that. this is what the obama administration's energy policy is. it's wind and solar. more drilling? the only drilling that occurred is on private land, and they go through torture to get permits to expand. they pay big fees to the law firm. i shouldn't complain about that, but they go through torture to get their permits on private lands, and there's no expansion on public lands at all. there's a pipeline on the drawing boards from alaska all the way down to texas that have been stoppedded by the obama administration even though it was approved by the state department, hillary clinton, and here's the one that -- here's the one that kills me the most. you know the way china is burning our coal? sending it up to the environment? china has agreed with cuba that it's going to drill for oil 20 miles off the coast of cuba which, i think, is 70 miles off the coast of florida? we're not drilling for it? it's our oil. explain that to me. china is going to do it safer than we

meaning. whether that meeting as defined in terms of religion or in terms in which life can take on significance. but to take on significance, life must be spent doing important things, things which you can take the dissatisfaction as you reach my age. my proposition and i will be interested in the audience wants to add another domain. it basically comes from the four domains, and those are location, family, community and faith. i will say that to the vocation will include avocations and causes in that definition. but basically they are all they are. there's other ways of having pleasure in life but those are the things that give us deep satisfaction. the reason they give us deep satisfaction is because if we are lucky we would spend our life doing something which we can legitimately say to ourselves and major difference and something which was important to do. finally a vacation that you love is important. a member of the community in which you are engaged in the lives of people around you and a good neighbor and more important than having backyard barbecues to read charge again
